Eagles Business As Usual Lyrics

Last updated: 11/12/2007 10:00:00 AM

(DON HENLEY & STEWART SMITH)

LOOK AT THE WEATHER
LOOK AT THE NEWS
LOOK AT ALL THE PEOPLE IN DENIAL
WE’RE BURNING TIME; BLEEDING GRACE
STILL, WE WORSHIP AT THE MARKETPLACE
WHILE COMMON SENSE IS GOING OUT OF STYLE
I THOUGHT THAT I’D BE ABOVE IT ALL, BY NOW;
IN SOME COUNTRY GARDEN IN THE SHADE

BUT IT’S BUSINESS AS USUAL
DAY AFTER DAY
BUSINESS AS USUAL
JUST GRINDING AWAY
YOU TRY TO BE RIGHTEOUS
YOU TRY TO DO GOOD
BUT BUSINESS AS USUAL
- TURN YOUR HEART INTO WOOD

MONUMENTS TO ARROGANCE; REACH FOR THE SKY
OUR BETTER NATURES BURIED IN THE RUBBLE
WE’VE GOT THE PRETTIEST WHITE HOUSE THAT MONEY CAN BUY,
SITTING UP THERE IN THAT BELTWAY BUBBLE
AND WHEN “EL JEFE” TALKS ABOUT OUR FREEDOM,
THIS IS WHAT HE REALLY MEANS:
BUSINESS AS USUAL
HOW DIRTY WE PLAY
BUSINESS AS USUAL
DON’T YOU GET IN THE WAY
MAKES YOU FEEL HELPLESS
MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE A CLOWN
BUSINESS AS USUAL IS BREAKIN’ ME DOWN

BOY, YOU CAN’T GO SURFIN’ IN CENTURY CITY
THEM SHARKS OUT THERE ARE LURKING BENEATH THE CURL
THEY’LL ROB YOU BLIND AND CHEW YOU UP, AND IT AIN’T PRETTY
AND IT’S A SOUL-SUCKING, SOUL-SUCKING, SOUL-SUCKING,
SOUL-SUCKING, SOUL-SUCKING, SOUL-SUCKING WORLD

BUSINESS AS USUAL – DAY AFTER DAY
BUSINESS AS USUAL – FEEL LIKE WALKING AWAY
A BARREL OF MONKEYS; A BAND OF RENOWN
BUT BUSINESS AS USUAL IS BREAKIN’ ME DOWN
